Hanukkah Sewing Projects


Also known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is an eight-day holiday celebrated by those of Jewish faith. The festival is observed by lighting candles in a special candelabrum called a Menorah. The Menorah has nine branches and on each night of the holiday, one candle is lit until all eight are lit on the last night. A ninth candle, called a shamash, is also lit each night and used to light the others. It occupies a special spot on the Menorah separate from the rest.

Below you will find some links to sewing projects to make for your Hanukkah celebration. If you know of others that I have missed, please send the link to me and I will add it to the list.
